wheel hubs for '99

I have read on here that you can upgrade the rotors and wheel bearing unit to a late '99 and it is a perfect fit. I was wondering though, what if the one side is early '99 parts and newer and I only want to change one side now, is that a problem? Thanks for the input.

I would think that you could do that...never heard of it but that's not to say it couldn't work. Its not going to know the difference.

I would think it would work just fine.

i did it and ran that way for a while with mine. i have since switched both sides.

i also was able to use washers to make up the difference in the mismatched parts for a short time. as i recall i shimmed between the brake caliper and where it mounts to adjust for the difference in the brake rotor., this bought me enough time to get the updated parts.

I did them one side at a time. Works just fine. Federated Auto was the cheapest on the hubs and rotors. I think I paid $160 for the hub and $52 for the rotor. Stick with a semi-metallic pad if you want good braking. Ceramics don't bite as well . . .
